would you do the same if you were in Fred or Gary's shoes?

    I don't blame either one of them and I would probably do the same thing. I mean what can they do? Quit? It isn't like either one of them could get a job that paid them remotely what they are getting paid for the Stern Show.

    It's Howard's show and if he wants to destroy it, there is nothing that Fred or Gary can do other than either go down with the ship or quit and sell their integrity over massive amounts of money. If Howard was killing people, I would look down on them for choosing the later, but just because he has shit on the fans wouldn't be enough for me to give up a job that paid me high six or seven figures a year.

    I'd do it to support my family, but would be actively and aggressively looking for a fulfilling job at every possible opportunity.

    Can't blame either one. Go along to get along. It's serious money. Besides, what else would either one be doing at this stage of their careers?

    This is why I don't hate Gary. He has turned into a douche because Howard has made him turn into a douche and be the Bagdad Bob of the Stern Show.

    he lost me when he went to the 'What do you do for a living?'

    as if he has the right to turn his nose up on some dude that drives a truck or works at a restaurant

    Man, it's tough to say but if we're talking good money for what is essentially 3 days of work and a LOT of vacation weeks?

    Yeah, I'd sell out. :facepalm:

    But would you allow them to abuse you every fucking day like they do Gary? That's where I would draw the line...I at least have some self-respect and dignity...and no amount of money would be able to buy that from me...I would not become some whipping boy and laughing stock of the whole world just because someone paid me a lot of money..

    Man, you make a point. I'd probably aim for going the Fred-route.

    But even then it would be difficult to chime in those stupid chuckles every now and again.

    Yeah, Gary level humiliation? No. I mean, the guy has talked about how he likes to eat ass and enjoys teen-anal.

    Ugh.

    Howard basically called Fred's wife a whore to his face on air back when she was doing the Tina's Wedding gig
